Gift helps class leave its mark on campus

Thanks to the generosity of the Class of 2018, Grove City College’s Wolverine pride has been enshrined, “brick by brick,” on campus.

A circle of pavers featuring the College’s classic crimson Varsity G and engraved bricks bearing messages from some of the donors was laid down over the summer along a walkway between Thorn Field and the iconic Rainbow Bridge. The work was covered by the Class of 2018’s senior gift to the College. The class raised nearly $40,000 earmarked for the landscape feature, which was installed by Funyak Landscapes of Mars, Pa.,

“This project brings the spirit of Grove City College to life on a well-traveled path and adds beauty to the College landscape,” Melissa (Trifaro ’96) MacLeod, senior director of Alumni and College Relations said. She thanked alumni for “making your mark at Grove City College, and for inspiring future generations of GCC graduates to do the same.”

“Brick by brick,” a phrase that was popularized by Head Football Coach Andrew DiDonato ’10 as his players worked to end the team’s long winless streak in 2016, has become an inspirational mantra on campus, signifying determination, hard work and faith.
